Four years ago today,Iowa judges legalized gay marriage in that state. Despite three judges getting booted,another one retained his seat.
One name should also be mentioned when we think of gay rights heros. That name is Mike Gronstal,who unlike so many other politicians,was actually willing to risk his career in defense of LGBT rights.
There has been an attempt by Iowa Republicans to get a gay marriage ban put on the ballot every year since that ruling.
Gronstal has blocked it every time stating something that needs to be shouted from the roof tops. We don't put civil rights up for a vote,period.
If you want to know why there hasn't been a ballot ala Prop 8, Mike Gronstal is the reason why.
